I know I shouldn't be upset about this, but I really think our school is trying hard to NOT have anyone fail out. This last term was really bad. Basically we had a review before the tests...and the review consisted of paraphrasing the actual test itself. The instructors would not go over every question, so there were still a few surprises. But all we had to do was listen well on the review and it was easy to get an A. We took some very critical classes too, like Pharm II, OB/Peds and health assessment. The results of making things so easy for us was 1. the lazy people still did bad, because they are lazy. 2. For those of us who care, we really did not have to study at all and all got A's. And we had the same "easy" instructor for pharm I, and now many of us feel we don't know jack crap about meds.
In many ways I feel I'm being cheated out of an education because they are catering to the lazy stupid people in class. But on the other hand part of me says I should just put the blinders on, get through school with an easy 4.0GPA and don't worry about it.
